Your First (And Last) Look At Mercenaries 3

Kotaku writes: "Mercenaries developers Pandemic went bust last year, while members of the studio were hard at work on a third game in the sandbox warfare series. This is what it would have looked like, had it ever been released.

The game had the working title of Mercenaries 3: No Limits and was still in the early stages of development when Pandemic was closed up. That explains why things look a little rough; it was a showreel displaying the game's new concepts, not a shiny trailer designed for public consumption."

Weep Weep, Cry Cry.

Alright, so it was indeed pretty rough, and I'm not exactly feeling the new 40s-50s era style, but it could've held some promise. Also, the voice acting was terrible, but most of that was just placeholder (hopefully).

Now, us Merc fans are simply waiting for EA to show Mercs Inc or whatever the hell Mercenaries game they are working on (since they took on a lot of the Pandemic people and the Mercenaries IP and shipped them and it over to EA LA)at either the VGAs or E3.

Seems like they were using the RE4 cam.

RIP Pandemic. You had your ups and downs, but I still have a good amount of fond memories of your games.

Yes Mercs Inc is still under its veil at EALA with former Pandemic staff working on it. Should be interesting when and if its shown off in the future. :)

I remember army men RTS that game was da shizz.

To Pandemic went bust I still remember their slogan:

"The only thing we have to fear...is the air it self"!

Looks a lot like The Saboteur.

Still mercs 1 is one of my favorite games. Bring it back to its roots, that feel. I personally hate where they took the game, i like the destruction but they ruined it :(

hopefully they release it on PSN, that game was excellent, especially since I wasn't allowed to play GTA.

I liked Mercs 1 much better than the sequel. An HD remake disc-based or on PSN would be great.

Mercenaries 3 To Use Frostbite 2 Engine? Job Listings May Be The Hint

Mercenaries has never seen the kind of sales of other sandbox games, but in that sense it's always been a niche hit. Now new details uncovered suggest that the third installment may actually use Battlefield 3's impressive Frostbite 2 engine. Will that sell it big?
A NeoGAF forum member by the name of Nirolak took the time to sleuth out every bit of supporting evidence he could find, coming up with some interesting pointers to help the rumor along. And nothing has bolstered rumors better in the last year than developer job listings, which he unearthed in spades.
